My daughter and I enjoyed a great meal here with perfect service. The menu had lots of choices and the ambiance was great. Not a bad thing to say about this restaurant. We'll definitely be back the next time we're in town.

Great ambiance. Friendly and professional wait staff. Excellent crusty bread. Outstanding calamari fritti and salads. Owner/chef really cares about his customers. 10% off entire check prior to 7:00pm.

The food was excellent. I had the osso bucco and it was delicious. I really didn't like the cheesecake it wasn't tasty and left most of it...but overall I'd go again.

From the hostess to the servers who refill glasses, replace silverware and bring out the bread, the Geranio team works like a well-oiled machine. Our waiter, Mario, was above and beyond. He took excellent care of us and went out of his way to help us craft a "Take Home" dinner for a sick neighbor of ours making considerate, thoughtful... More

My husband and I are local but for some reason had never gone to Geranio together until last night, even though every time we'd passed by in the evening it has been full with visibly happy people. We intend to make up for this in the future. The atmosphere inside is perfect - warm, inviting, and lively with conversation but... More

I really, really enjoy Geriano's asparagus risotto, so we headed there a week or two ago to get some. Surprise- it's restaurant week! We ended up going with the RW menu, since it still had my risotto on it, and were definitely pleased with the food. I started out with a caesar salad, while my boyfriend had the butternut squash...

We have been going to this location for years. This year we took advantage of their restaurant week special. The service was below average, the food only average and the noise level is loud. It was a good value for the food, but a disappointment.

Very tasty pasta and friendly staff. Beet and arugula salad is one of the best I have ever tried. Authentic pasta and ragu sauce.

The restaurant was empty while arrival and servers promptly seated us. Although service was very poor. Our waiter did not care to be polite or care to our special date. Considering the place was not busy we would think service could have been of better caliber. Will definitely not be back!

My wife and I ate lunch here on Monday, January 2, 2017. Excellent service was provided by Alberto. And our food and drinks were delicious. We shared the fried calamari with lemon caper sauce. Her entree was the swordfish, mine the wrapped tuna. The margaritas were tasty. When you visit Alexandria, eat here.
